Science Museum of Minnesota

Museums & History

The Twin Cities are home to top-notch museums for all interests and ages. The Science Museum of Minnesota is a must-visit for families (they also host super fun 21+ events!). The Minnesota History Center, SeaLife Minnesota Aquarium, and the Minnesota Children’s Museum are also beloved family-friendly museums.


The Walker Art Center & Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is a renowned museum of contemporary art and home to the iconic Spoon & Cherry. The Minneapolis Institute of Art has free admission! Always. You can also explore Minnesota’s Scandinavian heritage at the American-Swedish Institute (plus, their restaurant was rated ‘best lunch in Minnesota’ by the Star Tribune. Swedish meatballs anyone?) 

It’s all within easy reach of Minneapolis Northwest.
